‘Take the World but Give Me Jesus’

Erlene didn’t have to twist my arm to get me to post this classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, Take the World but Give Me Jesus. It’s sung by Voice of Praise, and I wish I knew who provided the photographs.

The beauty of nature is an important witness to God’s glory as its creator, sustainer, and redeemer. It can move us emotionally, because our God intended that it should. To separate the natural world from its Creator is folly–and I don’t think “sin” is too strong a word for it.
